I trust you, I just don't know with what. I did't get what you were saying. Too tired, probably.

I am from Piperi clan, the other half doesn't count in Montenegro

Pipo was the brother of Vaso, the founder of Vasojevici, there were 5 of them originally.

Drobnjaci and Vasojevici are probably the strongest clans in Montenegro. You are related to Vuk Karadzic with your Drobnjak line

If you are a true Vasojevic-Drobnjak "mix" you must be quite tall

I am 190 cm and I am the shortest in the family Also Novak Djokovic is Vasojevic from his father side I think.

Heroes
Djoker = GOAT
DelPo = Purger of the Vultures
Hewitt = Llegend
Iron STan = Saviour of tennis
Villains
Nadull - moonballer with zero talent
Ferrer - Talentless Vulture
Tomic - overrated mug who will never win anything big

Indeed, Novak is Montenegrin originally, from my area of Niksic, I think he is Ozrinic but I am not 100% sure.

The same story with me, I am only 187cm, and even my grandfather was more than 200cm tall

I'm familiar with folk music from all around the world. A lot of it is amazing: Spanish, Urkrainian, Scottish and Celtic, Jewish. None move me like Serbian though. But I was raised on it so...

That's something else.
Misha Glenny - The Balkans: 1804 - 2012, I finished in February, outstanding. The biggest problem I have is pronouncing the towns & surnames, even now it takes me twice as long to read a book on the Balkans than any other book.

I haven't read the book but I heard it's a quality, comprehensive study. He is often cited in ex-yu countries too, and his books are translated into local languages. The issue is indeed a complex one and it's a brave decision to embark on such project.

But many things depend on viewpoints, on "where you stand on". For example, if there are so many people, not least among historians, who will in unison proclaim Churchill, an overall unsavory character "a man of the century" I must beg to differ.

But Churchill did say something like Balkans produce more history than they can consume, and I fully agree. One another occasion, when he was told by his associate something like "Tito will turn Yugoslavia into a Soviet-like dictatorship", he retorted "Do you intend to live there?"

If the book captures that sense of shaping the lives of the millions like it was a game of chess, I think the author maybe did a good job.
